that president obama used to talk about overuse. in a speech he gave to congress in his first term, he mentioned it, that we need to curtail overuse. but i don't hear president obama talking about overuse anymore as a factor in reducing medicare spending. so once again it's going to be informed members of the public who will have to put it back on the agenda. citizens will have to be the ones to correct the misallocation of resources because it will not self-correct. while preparing for talk, i was thinking about what are some of the solutions, and i was in princeton, new jersey, a couple of weeks ago walking along nassau street, and there was a bookstore. and there was a quote in that book store about how democracy -- to fix our democracy, we need more democracy. we need more informed citizens who are aware of what's going on to serve as a countervailing influence, a check and balance in the system. i think the biggest challenge we face is that health care companies whose primary duty is to shareholders, they have to demonstrate increased revenue and profitability. they have to do that as a con

talked about the decision, should be do health care or not? and obama'sed a sliders saying do not do health care. what the public wants is you to focus on the economy. unemployment is 10%. that's where you need put your efforts. don't want you being diverted. and what essentially persuaded obama for him to decide i'm doing health care anywhere was his legacy, providing for greatness, he needed health care, a goal that eluded presidents for a century. so, two members of his coalition presidency spent their terms locking horns they wouldn't be able to have the kind of achievements, establish the kind of record that would have important legacy for the ages. so, that's why i think it would work out. it's not only my fairly educate guess but we have other support. switzerland i like to use as an example. does it work anywhere else? in switzerland they're executive branch they call a federal council, hat seven department heads, and they possess equal decisionmaking authority. there's no first among equals. they really are truly equals. they rotate through the presidency for one year term a

that in the book. i feel as if barack obama is in a position where, whenever he talks about race, his unfavorable ratings with white voters go up precipitously. and we saw that when henry lou guess gates, the noted professor at harvard got arrested inside his team when neighbors thought they saw burglars. he talked about it during a press conference and his unfavorable rate went up with white voters and in a sense he was pressured to find another way to talk about that issue, and of course we remember the infamous beer comment. the same thing happened when he talked about trayvon martin. he said this young teen, trayvon martin, unarmed black teen, killed in a subdivision by a neighborhood watch volunteer, he said if i had a son he would look like trayvon, and that helped ignite a conservative backlash to that situation simply because the president spoke in terms that could be related to race. i think he has quite rightly sort of intuited they're not a lot of upside to him talking about race when hi is president and there's a lot of down side for democrats and himself, and is a say in the book i c

, for me, was so powerful during the election was the time when obama actually had to come out and talk explicitly about race. because one of the things -- >> he did it here if philadelphia. >> he did it right here in philadelphia. one of the ironies, there's so many ironies in our contemporary political moment, but one of the most powerful ones is the first black president is the one who can talk the least about race. it's the third, fourth and fifth rail for that -- i mean, there's something about race that he knows he can't discuss, and part of what he tried to do in that moment at least was to say let me say something th think is going to bring people together that's forward thinking, and then hopefully i'll never have to bring it up again. and there's something about that, i think, in some ways that is quintessential paranoia. the idea is americans are so fatigued about race, they're so resistant to thinking about racial inclusion that to even bring up the idea of race too often means folks are going to disqualify you from the highest office in the land. you're not going to be a pr

could potentially work with is not a great example , but to talk more. president obama mentioned there are now 100 high-tech firms on the west bank. i interviewed this israeli venture capitalist. cisco has invested in them. it is an area of the economy that can and should grow. what is the answer in terms of u.s. policy? first of all i think we have to scale back we're trying to do. i mentioned corruption and no a specifically name the karzai government that has been a huge impedimenta things we try to achieve. hopefully it will be one of his brothers. we don't -- you know, if we don't feel that we have a local partner i think we should hold back in our aid efforts. one thing that we can do is create more incentives like its european union system that was used in turkey. two years ago the secretary clinton used the term economic statecraft. any of you heard that all? this is journalists fall. we don't write about these things. she declared in 2011 in a speech in new york that economic tradecraft was now at the heart of american foreign policy. she defined economic statecraft as c

's what president obama is talking about. that's why we'll continue to work with congress to pursue the proposal the president put forward in his budget, a proposal that once again is fully paid for. today's report emphasizes that when it comes to early education, quality does matter. and that quality means more than just learning numbers and the abcs. it means insuring kids get the nutrition and preventive care they need to stay healthy, building social and emotional skills, engaging parents to headache -- to make sure they're nurturing their children's development. over the last four years, we've pursued an historic effort to raise the bar on quality in early education, and we've had unprecedented and incredible coordination and collaboration with the department of education. that includes the race to the top early learning challenge, and it also includes a range of efforts in the head start program including sharing best practices on training and curriculum and making sure that funding competition goes to the strongest centers. so as in this report -- as this report shows, we hav

beat president obama on the issue of government spending. just don't talk about medicare, and don't talk about social security. but you can talk about government spending. many republicans would then add to that don't talk about national defense, the pentagon budget should also be off limits. the problem with that thinng is you have now exempted the three largest parts of the federal budget from your critique of federal spending. so so these are sort of the divisions and the conflicts and the contradictions that i think any serious proponent of limited government has to contend with. i think there's been a sort of this view that's been propounded that limited government is impossible. anarchists even make this argument, and i would argue -- i would counter to you that limited government is possible but difficult. the fact that there has been limited government in the united states government was a fairly limited government for 150 years even after the progressive era, even after the civil war where there was some government growth, and there were some impediments to government gro
